“News, news, news, news, news …”?

Vancouver Opera’s 11-year general director, Jim Wright, may do handsprings when Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro opens at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre tonight. But his fingers will remain crossed regarding the much newer Nixon In China. Wright said San Francisco Opera general director David Gockley is “seriously considering” staging VO’s recent production of the 1987 work. That imminent decision could entail our regional outfit’s first sale to a major opera company.

Read here. I believe that SF Opera doing Nixon in China in the summer of 2012 is a done deal (?), so I’m assuming this is just about a new staging of it, which would nix Peter Sellars’ version.

But what do I know?

But if that’s the case … will we not see this?:
